Let’s find out if KMSPico the software that instantly activates your Windows PC with a license and other Microsoft products and can be re-activated infinitely, is actually safe or not.
What does the term KMSpico mean?
Microsoft uses a technology called KMSpico (Key Management Service) used to activate multiple devices in bulk(like in a corporate environment). These softwares are activated and their activation details are stored in a volume license channel which is not available to the public(the softwares you buy from stores have their activation data stored in a volume retail channel).
KMSpico activates a client PC with its KMSpico client (device) by calling back to the KMS server which is licensed from Microsoft. The KMSpico servers are located on the domain network every set interval rather than Microsoft’s servers, so as to prevent potential privacy leaks or avoid a bombardment of Microsoft’s servers with an excess amount of activation requests.
How KMSpico It Works?
KMSpico replaces your installed license key with a volume license key or adds a new one if your Windows isn’t activated. After this, it creates a virtual instance of a KMS server on your system(in older versions, it searched for KMS servers online) and after creating the server successfully it will force your softwares and products to activate with this virtual KMS server created by you and the software.
Is KMSpico Actually Safe?
Because KMSpico alters and plays with your net configuration to activate, it will pass off the local host as a different IP, so you might view some strange entries as such on your firewall’s log entries.
This is a totally safe and normal process and works very identical to Microsoft’s KMS tool and functions nothing different from it in any way.
Also to note, KMS activates your system with a key that lasts for only 180 days after which it will have to be activated again, but with KMSpico, you do not have to worry about this, since it will create an activation service to reset the counter of your activation twice a day.
KMSpico also comes with a portable version which won’t be running in the background if you do not like having KMSpico up always with your system, but the only downside is that you have to manually relicense Windows once every 180 days.
If you still worry about KMSpico containing viruses or malware or any sort of issues you might have with it, then you can always run it through COMODO Valkyrie which is an online file analyser that detects for suspicious lines of code that may harm your computer in a program. You could also run it in a sandbox like the program Sandboxie with runs the program in a controlled state where you can see what it is accessing and modifying and if it harms your computer or not. This is a good step to take, because since KMSPico’s popularity, there have been at least a thousand fake sites providing links to viruses for every real KMSPico download site.
KMSPico is an extremely easy to use and a remarkable program, you should definitely check it out if you need any of it’s services and not worry about it being harmful when you actually download from the official sources. Thank you for reading and have a nice day.
